The OnePlus 6T is a smartphone of many firsts for OnePlus. It’s the company’s first device with a display-based fingerprint sensor. It’s also the first for OnePlus to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack. Many will be wondering how the OnePlus 6T performs in a durability test and the YouTube channel famous for durability tests, JerryRigEverything, now has the answer.
The device is protected by Gorilla Glass 6 on the front so it’s pretty resistant to scratches. Even the display-based fingerprint sensor remains unfazed and works as advertised when the display glass is heavily scratched. The concern many would have had might have been about the fingerprint sensor’s ability to do its job with a badly scratched display glass. This test shows that it will continue to function as expected.
If you scratch the back with software metals then those can easily be wiped off. It will only be the harder metals that leave permanent scratches on the device so some level of diligence will certainly be required when living with this handset on a daily basis.
The OnePlus 6T offers the kind of durability that you would expect from a premium smartphone in this day and age. The company’s fans will be happy to see that the device does well and passes this famous durability test.
